Hi Simmers, my sympathy goes to all the probs with the 3dfx v3. Hope it is resolved! Now, I used to run v2 but last year went v5 and I used to love Ef2000 so I am considering ordering Typhoon from England (softwarefirst) just to get it now. Can anyone (maybe even Steve) give me advice on its v5 with dx8.0a compatability. Also, any thoughts on softwarefirst?
